    contact the breeder you got her from and ask for some advice. Usually a good breeder will either help, or offer to take the puppy back and find a new home for it, perhaps with more experienced dog-handlers who would be able to train a difficult dog. Failing that, if you decide you can't look after it, take it to an animal shelter.

    Teach her who is the alpha male around the house. Stare her down. they will always look away, then she would respect you.

    Some dog trainers recommend giving the pup a little tap on the snout every time they go to bit just enought to sting a bit. But you might not like this as it seems a bit cruel and its hard to avoid getting bitten! You could try taking her to a dog trainer but if you really can't cope phone an animal shelter and see if they'll take her in.

    i tried to show it to her but she doesnt give a damn. she wants to rule. what are the ways of telling the dog: i am the alpha (*****) dog here? is hitting allowed? i read that i should not hit her under no circumstances but its soooo tepmting lately

    Hitting I think is out of teh question. Though a little pat on her nose is enough to show dominance. Never show weakness.

    Dogs are social creatures with complex hierarchies. The reason your poodle behaves badly is because she doesn't realise that you are the dominant one.

    If you take your dog to a shelter and she is aggressive towards the staff, they will most likely put her to sleep, even those with a 'we dont put a healthy dog do sleep' policy. You will also have to donate some money.

    If a dog is aggressive like that, you're supposed to wrestle it to the ground and hold its mouth shut. That's apparently what they do in the wild, and it teaches them who's boss.

    No it won't hurt her, it'll just teach her who's boss. Put her on her back on the ground, and hold her mouth closed until she stops trying to fight back, you might want some backup around! Good luck!

    My Jack Russel was a pain in the a*se when he was a puppy- in the mornings he'd grab hold of my dressing gown and wouldn't let go so I'd have to drag him round the house with me, that sort of thing. But now he's a bit older he's soooo lovely so just bear with it
